Man Accused of Accidentally Shooting, Killing Friend in Charlevoix Co. Now Charged

The man accused of accidentally shooting and killing his friend in Charlevoix County has now been charged.

It happened back in April at an apartment in Charlevoix.

Anthony Michanowicz is now charged with reckless discharge of a firearm causing death.

Back in April he brought a gun to Gregory Van Stedum’s apartment for him to look at.

Police say it wasn’t loaded when Van Stedum looked at it.

But when he handed it back, police say Michanowicz loaded it and accidentally fired it, hitting and killing Van Stedum.

Michanowicz is expected to be back in court later this month.
